"La Serenissima Dominate" (The Most Splendid
Maritime Republic) is literally laid at your feet as you stroll from
lagoon to bridge to piazza.
Your private lecture-tour begins at the
Byzantine jewel of Venice , St. Marks Church and Square. From here you
experience architectural splendor of the Bell Tower - Il Campanile,
Renaissance Masterpieces and a breath-taking view of the old harbor
(Bacino di San Marco) from the Ponte dei Sospiri - " Bridge of Sights ".
A stop at Marco Polo's House precedes you visit to the Rialto Bridge. From there you will dedicate last hour of your tour to discovering hidden sites, so often missed by first time visitors.
The Lecture-Guide, while speeding you past lines
and through secret entrances, explains to you why Napoleon once called
this city, "Europe 's finest drawing room".
